Bike and Hike Trail

Northern route is excellent; the loop, not so much

September, 2021 by bkbj4dkd2r

I did this trail in two sections. The loop from 303 down through Stow/Kent and back up was definitely not flat. Also crossed and road along a lot of roads. The residential section was nice, but it was difficult to see the bike trail signs at times so I got off course more than once. The northern section from Alexander down to 303 is fantastic. While you do cross a few roads, they’re not as busy as the ones in the loop. I would suggest walking your bike across them – The roads are slightly elevated with limited visibility before you reach them. The scenery is hard to beat – lots of gorgeous rock formations and you even go across the top of Brandywine Falls.

Sippo Valley Trail

rough pavement, smooth gravel

September, 2021 by tandemspeaks

Beautiful mostly shaded trail between Dalton and Massillon. Three miles in the middle of 10 mile trail is gravel (not paved). The paved sections at each end are in rough shape. Lots of roots, bumps and rough bridge entrances/exits as well as a trench right after first bridge coming from Dalton - watch out! The gravel section was smooth and easy to ride on our trek gravel bikes.

Bike and Hike Trail

Northern section better than the south

September, 2021 by bkbj4dkd2r

I did the southern loop from 303 down around Stow Kent and back up to 303. Way more hills than I expected but was most disconcerting was the number of busy intersections and travel on roads. I will not do this loop again. The northern section from Alexander to 303 is fantastic. You cross a few roads - safest to stop and walk bike on them to to steep incline at intersection and somewhat limited visibility. The scenery is fantastic - you pass over Brandywine Falls and there are beautiful rock formations in a wooded area just north of 303. Rolling inclines rather than steep hills. Will do this section Again.

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Lovely historic ride thru a National Park

September, 2021 by ejlayden

Started the tow path in Independence, OH and rode to Peninsula. Had to back track to our parked car - so would recommend planning to take the train at Independence and then ride the whole trail from the Akron end.
Good riding surface of packed limestone - even for riders like us who prefer paved. Fun lunch stop in Peninsula. Not often you can ride 20+ miles in a National Park.

County Line Trail (OH)

what a gem!

September, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

Just beautiful. Smooth asphalt trail in the country with low traffic. I loved the scenery and solitude!

Meredith State Road Trail

Construction had begun on a section in northeast Sunbury

September, 2021 by eshawger

Construction has begun north from Hartford Road seemingly to connect to the southern most part of the Meredith State Road trail. The gaps are being filled in and this will be an awesome trail connecting Westerville and Columbus to Mt. Vernon and beyond when completed.

Lester Rail Trail

Nice ride

August, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

I rode this yesterday for the first time. My route was from the end point back to the Lester Trail parking lot. What a great shaded ride! The only problem I encountered was newly placed gravel in the parking lot.

Chippewa Inlet Trail

wide open spaces

August, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

I love the open space on this route. Smooth path and very scenic.

Chippewa Rail-Trail

a local favorite

August, 2021 by bryanhsimmons

The trail is close-by and I enjoy the ride. Lots of trees and relatively smooth trail. A couple of bumps along the way due to root growth.

Holmes County Trail

Trail is very good but be aware.

August, 2021 by forsterjj

Have traveled Danville to Glenmont multiple times. The trail is mostly covered with shade from the trees and that is the reason I like riding it. I don't mind the horse poo on the trail just go around. What I do mind is the buggies not giving any room to pass. This weekend had two buggies not giving but a foot or two to pass around. Guess I'll need a rather loud horn rather than a bell from now on!

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Bolivar - Route 212 Update (S turn under train bridge)

August, 2021 by crableg300

For those of you that have ridden the trail in Bolivar where you had to ride on route 212 on that dangerous S part under the train bridge, well there is an amazing and positive change.

The folks have completed the trail with a wooden deck under the train bridge and around. The start of the new change occurs at the one 212 trail head. Enjoy - the people that did the work did a GREAT job.

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Akron to Independence

August, 2021 by deborah.pulzone

We biked from just south of Akron to Independence. Akron was an easy urban area to navigate. Then we went north to Independence which was lovely. Even though it was a weekend it wasn’t too crazy with people. With the exception of the city this is a lovely bike ride.
